I am sure you already solved this but for anyone who comes across this thread I found this to work:
# cd ../pathto/jboss-x.x.x/server/default/conf/props
# vi jmx-console-users.properties
it is user=password format, change them accordingly. Now you can login with your new username and password
Thanks for the input. I do change the user/password pair at the location, but what about the other places
that I mentioned in my previous post ?, Do I have to change them there also ?. Futhermore after changing the
password at these two location below. After a few login with the new password and a restart of jboss, I cannot login
with the new password, but can login with the old password.
The password should be changed by using the admin console
but it is not accessible with a minimal installation.
Also, there is a warning in this manual:
If a resource was previously deployed and modified via the Console, the administration of the resource should continue to be done via the Console. The resource modifications are persistent but will not be reflected in the resources original configuration file. This means that changes between manual edits to configuration files and changes performed via the Console are not interchangeable. If you make a change to a configuration file outside of the Administration Console it will override and replace any changes you have previously made via the Console.
